Yes I know, I moaned the whole way home from Spain, and grumped most of the flight from Portugal but I had SPACE this time. Two whole big fat empty seats beside me which meant I could kip whenever I felt so inclined. Yeah! And to satisfy the geeky bit, I taught myself backgammon on the touch screen do-dah in front of me and got even with the computer, (after about 20 games... I'm a slow learner).
And now, I'm in temporary residence with my friend and her family. Jen and I have known each other since we were in single digits when she started visiting her grandmother in Northern Ireland, and we've been the best of chums ever since. I love being here and catching up and enjoying the fun and endless tea with her, her Lebanese husband and four children (20, 15, 13, 5).
For a news junkie though, (professionally speaking of course) I had a famine through the start of the week so have had to sneaky peek at the web to find out The Results. (Thanks BBC News team - keep it up guys!) The camp under this roof is somewhat divided (an Irish/Lebanese split) so we don't talk about it ;o)
